How do I handle Various Artists

Post by AlanRackham »

Help

I am very new to MM so I am sorry if this has already been asked. I have a CD Culture Club - The Best of Culture Club, 1989. On this CD there are tracks from the one artist, but recorded on different dates. How should I correctly handle this? I want to create a VirtualCD of this album in the first instance and then sync it with my Walkman later on. Also I was hoping to change the album to reflect the original album that the track came off for example track 1 "Do you really want to hurt me" came from the album "Kissing to be Clever" in 1982. I was also considering changing the album art to reflect the individual track albums on the CD. Finally I was going to "Encoded from The Best of Culture Club" in the comments.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks for the replies I figured it out. I can chance the album art for individual tracks and there is a field for original album which is really cool.
